I think I know what this is supposed to mean. The international symbol for correct is a check or tick. The international symbol for incorrect is a cross or X. This really is a dig at Jesus and Christianity.

The cross is not just Christian, ancient Egyptians used it as a symbol for reincarnation before replacing it with an Ankh when Christianity came to Egypt.

Simon is in the UK, everyone. The hot cross buns are a big deal there, especially in the Anglican church.

The pagan practice of baking cakes to the Queen of Heaven is still alive and well. Slightly modified, of course. The real meaning of the x is found at the Vatican. It’s a symbol for Nimrod.

This is a supermarket chain, not a country. And these are pieces of bread…soooo….even though it’s “tradition”, I’m not seeing how this is the least bit threatening to Christianity.

I’m fully aware of the connection, I come from a very religious family. What I find more offensive are the different flavour hot cross buns, they don’t even have fruit in it. Now that gets my back up 🙂

What’s not being addressed here is the hot cross buns are an occult symbol. The cross represented the rebirth of the world after winter and the four quarters of the moon, as well as the four seasons and the wheel of life.

In other words, this wasn’t Christian to begin with.

You’re probably right but hot cross buns have been associated with Christianity for centuries. They are eaten on Good Friday to celebrate the end of Lent and the resurrection. So I do think these are at best trivializing Christianity and at worst mocking it.

if you ever want to know whether or not you have a stress and/or an anxiety disorder… go drive around the interior of Iceland for a couple weeks. I was there back in 2018 and sheesh… wanted to burn my driver’s license upon returning home. lol.

Oh please. No one gives a s**t apart from very few people. How many people in the UK will actually go to Church over Easter? Not many. Easter is just a money grab for dumb dumbs who spend crazy money on eggs etc

It’s interesting that they decided to try this based on the interest of 1/5 of customers. That means that 4/5 of customers liked the original and they still decided to “try something new”. What school of business teaches that?
